Digital Transformation in Metal Industry

In today’s world, where digitalization determines the competitive conditions, the metal sector also seeks its way out of the difficulties with “digitalization”. Metal industry, which includes special processes such as casting, cutting, slitting, painting, galvanizing and rolling, restructures important production processes with new technologies. Sharp competition, supply-demand balances of this industry, production capacities, tax practices, import-export restrictions and incentives are important in terms of pricing behaviors on a global scale.

Since the 4th Industrial Revolution entered our lives at a dizzying pace, it has transformed every industry differently. In order to reach the maturity level of our industry to Industry 4.0, we should use the new technologies that have entered our lives with this revolution. High efficiency, cost reduction, environmentally friendly production, accurate analysis of systems are just a few of these benefits. A properly machined metal can mean better quality production and energy savings. The metal industry covers difficult and very detailed processes. Completing these processes with automation can increase efficiency in many steps of the industry.
